As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

WF8 Portal - Hide tabs under each portal?

Hi Team,

When I make a WF8 Portal, and add some tabs, I see each tab under the portal tree. This is useful for me as an admin, because I can right click and remove customizations. However, my basic users see these tabs, and they can't do anything with them. I actually had a user say I cannot open the portal, because they were expanding the tree and double-clicking on the tab names. They didn't even try to double-click the portal icon itself, which works fine.

I am looking for a setting that hides the tabs under the portal tree.

This affects the ibi_apps landing page and the portal tree gadget within a portal.

Cheers,

Joey

I would open a case with IBI. With WF 8 being so new and having so many security models you may find it challenging to get and answer you are looking for. My portals also display the pages (tabs) below but regular users cannot do anything with. In my case, the portals are not expanded or at least it doesn’t show the pages until you expand it.

Hi MattC,

That's my experience as well. The portal is not expanded by default, but users surprise me sometimes with the things they do.

I might open a case, but I'll let this post percolate a little while longer first. I've already got some feedback on some other WF8 posts, so there are definitely people in the wild coming up with tricks and techniques.

Cheers,

Joey
